Gemmas Necklace

A few weeks ago Shelley noticed a little girl in her sons special needs class was a chewer. She could chew through a school uniform in no time flat! Noticing that she wasn’t wearing any chewy jewellery, Shelley bought one of our necklaces in the next day and gave it to the teacher for little […]

Numbness or burning of the hands and feet […]

Fatal X Factor

A few years ago a husband and father killed himself, his pregnant wife and son, and left his other son an orphan. This story breaks my heart for so many reasons, but it hits me even harder because they were a Fragile X family. This story (and others like it) have gone unnoticed in our […]

If we are to believe the news then things are pretty dire and you should lock your doors and not go out. I can tell you our experience this past month has been there are a lot more wonderful people out there, than the minority who get all the screen time. Every chemist, daycare, therapist, […]
